A recent study confirmed what conservatives have known all their lives: we look good.
Derek Zoolander said it best, “I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more to life than being really, really, ridiculously good looking. And I plan on finding out what that is.”
Well, a study published in the Journal of Public Economics did just that.
The study compared the general attractiveness of a political candidate to their ideology in Europe, Australia, and these United States.
It turns out conservatives have the right look.
I’ll say it again.
The study found that conservatives are seen as more pleasing to the eye than liberals.
Exhibit A: former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin – you betcha!
There’s just something about a woman who can hunt down and gut a moose, raise a family, and govern all at the same time.
Exhibit B: House Speaker Paul Ryan (just check out these memes on Tumblr)
Exhibit C: South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley
As for our friends on the Left? Well, to borrow a phrase from Elle Woods in Legally Blonde: they’re “not completely unfortunate looking.”
They say beauty comes from the inside out – at least someone did at some time – and like most conservatives I know, they have beautiful, generous hearts.
So, like Zoolander said, if you’re conservative, don’t be ashamed of being really, really ridiculously good looking.
